    Monday Nov 27 | NWAonline

    A convicted killer's claim that he's entitled to a new trial after 38 years in prison cannot overcome the fact that an eyewitness saw him abduct a North Little Rock veterinarian at gunpoint, hours before the doctor was found murdered, a Pulaski County circuit judge has ruled. The finding by Judge Leon Johnson is what prosecutors have been arguing for the past 15 years as 70-year-old Eugene Isaac "Gene" Pitts has tried to overturn the life sentence he received for the January 1979 kidnapping and slaying of 39-year-old Dr. Bernard Jones, a pioneering veterinarian.

  15. Monsanto: Halt herbicide banRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Nov 20 | The Courier

    A major agribusiness company asked an Arkansas judge Friday to halt the state's plan to ban an herbicide that's drawn complaints from farmers across several states who say the weed killer has drifted onto their fields and caused widespread damage. Monsanto asked a Pulaski County judge to strike down the rule approved by the state Plant Board earlier this month that would prohibit the use of dicamba from April 16 through Oct. 31. The ban is expected to go before a legislative panel next month, but the Missouri-based company said action is needed now because farmers are already buying their products for next year's growing season.
